Jazz singer Robin McKelle is an unabashed throwback to the ’60s. Infused with R&B, her new album, Mess Around, is a bit of departure from her two previous releases, which were essentially straight-up jazz records. Sultry songs like the Ray Charles-inspired title track and “I Just Want to Make Love to You” emphasize McKelle’s sensual side. The New York native also covers tunes by Leonard Cohen and Doc Pomus, belting them out as she stretches her big voice. She’ll be backed by a trio for tonight’s show at 8 at Nighttown. Tickets: $20. —Jeff Niesel
